Color printers, scanners, and copy machines make the modern office more efficient than ever, but they can present barriers to workers with disabilities. To create a more inclusive working environment, HP® has developed the Accessibility Kit®, a three-in-one package designed to remove the barriers between employees and their equipment. These innovative developments provide simple, low-cost solutions to common problems disabled workers experience every day.
The HP Accessibility Kit
Today’s printing and copying equipment offers a dizzying array of features, which usually means more buttons and more options. Those with vision impairments may have difficulty navigating this equipment, which is why HP developed Braille and tactile adhesives customized for their equipment. In addition to stickers designed for HP color printers and copiers, the kit also includes a tactile overlay designed for HP Flow® keyboards, enabling vision-impaired users to better use their computers.
HP Access Handle®
Workers in wheelchairs often have difficulty reaching and lifting the lid on copy machines. The Access Handle is a relatively simple device that allows these users to raise the document feeder lid, move documents on the scanner glass, and adjusting guides. Its ergonomic design makes it easy and comfortable to use, while the protective coating protects scanner and copier glass from accidental scuffs.
BigKeys LX® Keyboard
This specially designed keyboard features one-inch buttons designed for employees who may have fine motor limitations or vision impairments. The larger buttons are also color-coded, which makes it easier for visually impaired employees to use, and every device is carefully tested for durability.
